Tribute to the things that will pass away No.1
Traditional things are slowly forgotten and lost amid rapid social development. This is a tribute to the things with which we have spent time.
I made skeletons with well-aligned white bone shoes as a representation of the medical symptoms from wearing high heels and as a metaphor for social frameworks. The works refer to the state of a genetic desire being extracted from a human body or cut open for anatomy, the state of self-observation. They also serve as a gentle indictment against frameworks and paradigms.
Sense of ceremony
When I saw some stones in a circle, it felt very ceremonial and somewhat artificial, which led me to the idea of arranging them myself. I visualized the gradual processes from nothing to something, gloom to brightness, and few to many. The stone symbolizes some sort of growth, and the leaf stands for decay. I want to convey the idea of the endless cycle of growth and decay.
As you walk across Macao, you will find cobblestone pavements in different parts of the little town. The pavements, the food stands in Patane, the cannons on Mong Ha Hill, and the Coloane residents exposing salted fish in sunlight are what I can recall of the city in nostalgia after I left the place.
Doppelganger-Mirror Image-1
Doppelganger There are no exact copies in this world, no perfect clones. Even industrially mass-produced items are just copies which tend to be very close to the original. After all, any two copies are just independent individuals that are extremely similar, never identical. Regarding the topic of copying, I thought deeply about the relationship between the "first body" and the "second body" (its Doppelganger), and explored the spiritual and creative possibilities of copying through creation.
